  • "I asked for a quiet table and noted my wife's birthday when I made the reservation. Capital Grille team put us in a quiet area upstairs, had place a rose and happy birthday note on our table and honored us with a special dessert. Our waiter Yee Tar Zee was excellent. Food was cooked to perfection, couldn't have been any better."

  • "My wife and I have been to the Capital Grille in Tampa at least 10 times. This time, however, was our first true disappointment. It came in two ways: (1) The air conditioning vents were right above our table and it was chilly. We asked it be turned down twice and that did not happen. The server offered my wife a shawl which helped. But we (my wife and I) ended up physically moving our table away from the vents. (Yes, we moved the furniture.) (2) My medium-rare tuna as rare, bordering on raw. I actually could not cut it with my knife. The manager told us "That is our medium-rare." Well, it could could not have been cooked less than it was. We'll go back, but will be more aware of the seating and what they can and can not cook."

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful and quiet respite from a busy weekend at our favorite table - and Danielle made it even better as she quietly and efficiently took care of us. The steaks were prepared as always - perfectly. The kitchen always makes me a special potato dish without my even having to ask. It always feels as if we are the only customers - and we especially appreciate it when we need a quiet, restful time away from the crowds. Thank you for being here for us!"

  • "Everything was top notch from the moment we walked in the door. They had decorated our table with confetti and a card for my boyfriend's birthday which I thought was a nice touch. I think he was caught off guard because they really did make a big deal about it. He ordered the clam chowder and I ordered the french onion soup for an appetizer and we were both impressed with our choices. He ordered the porterhouse steak and I ordered the 10 oz filet for our entree along with the lobster mac n cheese. The steak was out of this world! The mac n cheese was good as well. They surprised us with dessert which was so delicious. This was definitely one of our most favorite meals and dining experiences we have had. I would highly recommend!"

    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "They went above and beyond to help us celebrate our anniversary. I indicated in the reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary & they greeted us with a Happy Anniversary, decorated the table, had a hand written card, and also provided a complimentary dessert. They made the evening very special."

  • "We are new residents in Tampa, and needed a special occasion dinner out. We made reservations and my wife noted the occasion. The front desk greeting was very nice, we had one drink at the bar with Becky, then went to the prepared table with a rose, and petals everwhere. The filet and sea bass entrees were cooked to perfection. We enjoyed the surprise celebration dessert. Kevin and Anne provided superb service, as did JJ the bus boy. We had looked at three other restaurants in the area, but this choice was definitely the right one."

  • "From the time we arrived until the time we left we felt like royalty. Our server Chris's recommendations were on point and the manager, Ken, made his way by our table a few times to make us feel so welcome. The food presentation was beautiful and it tasted even better. Would highly recommend Capital Grille to anyone looking for a special place to dine."

That and a couple of sides and a great bottle of wine - heaven. Finished with the chocolate cake and port. Always great to see Emily, Shawn, Ahna at the bar. Our server in the dining room Johanna was wonderful. Looking forward to my next visit already!"

  • "We had a great business dinner here. Was concerned with the Mall location, but found the restaurant to be first class and a great environment for a business dinner."

  • "Positive things: The food was great. The food presentation was very good. Overall hospitality was very good. Neutral things: Food prices were a little expensive, but expected. The overall lighting was romantic, but was too dim for me. A personal preference. Negative things: Our waitress treated us like a teacher scorning a student? She had no patience and we felt hurried."

  • "The food was excellent as always, but the Resturant was overbooked and reminded me of a cattle call. I would expect more of a Resturant of this caliber."

  • "Great for special occasions. With reservation, we sat right away. Filet was outstanding. I would put ahead of Bern's and on par with Council Oak."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Very expensive for the quality of the food. If you are looking for a great tasting steak, there are better options in the same price range, IMO."

  • "My husband and I are in from CT and we were so happy to be able to make a late afternoon reservation for Valentine's Day. We were seated by a beautifully friendly hostess and seated at a very romantic booth. We ordered a nice bottle of wine, a salad to start and asked our waiter to allow us time to enjoy the experience and not to rush the food. I like my filet and lobster a little well done so our waiter made sure that it was cooked to perfection and it was! We especially LOVE the potatoes au gratin and it is for them that we will always go to The Capital Grille when we are near one! Five stars all around!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "we have been to Capital Grille many times in Tampa and usually the food and service are outstanding. we went on February 15th and it was clear they overbooked and were slammed. The porterhouse we ordered had to be sent back because it was overcooked and the wedge salad was just eh no wow factor. it could have been a bad night but we were underwhelmed."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The Capital Grille food and service was excellent. Our requested waitress did her usual outstanding job. She is a seasoned waitress and knows all about her restaurant including the food preparation. She is very personable and just has the people skills to relax customers which makes dinner so much more enjoyable. You want for nothing as she is always taking care of your needs before you ask. It was a very nice evening for my wife and I. I did complain that I had asked for a booth but was seated at an extremely small table that we were told were brought in to accomodate as many customers as possible that Valentine's Day evening. That we understood. However when we saw other "twosomes" being seated in booths, that was disconcerting"
